Quatrième de couverture
Sams Teach Yourself C in 24 Hours, Second Edition, shows you how to program in C in an easy-to-understand format. C is a powerful and flexible language used for a wide range of projects. You begin with learning the basics to write a first program and then move on to arrays, pointers, disk input/output, and functions. This book will allow you to understanding data types, loops, and strings to make your programs work for you. You'll also work with arrays, structures, and unions to expand your programming skills, use pointers to access and retrieve data elements, develop programs that process mathematical equations, functions, and variables, and explore memory management techniques.

It serves as a good introduction material. The title of the book should give you a good clue that it is not meant to be a reference for the language. You probably should not expect to be an expert of C within 24 hours. I saw another review complaining that it does not explain pointer concept very clearly, which in my opinion is not true at all. If someone can't understand pointer concept after reading this book, it is unlikely this person will ever understand it. Not everyone can be a programmer :-)
That said I'd like to add that I've found Tony Zhang's book to be very much to my liking.
The style is preety clear thanks to contributing author John Southmayd. I'd say this isn't the most pleasing or captivating read, but then maybe one shouldn't expect such from a technical book.
Not much attention is given to creating a good style but structured progamming is mentioned.
You get a very brief historical introduction and a nice technical guide on setting up your MS or Borland compiler to do the book's examples.
This book does have a thorough coverage of the basics. C concepts are well explained, such as data types, operators , pointers, arrays, strings, memory allocation and pre-compiler directives.
The book is very thorough in the way that it covers all the operators as well as I/O.
I also found quite compelling the way the author being Oriental uses Haiku poems to illustrate his examples.
Advanced types are covered but not advanced pointers except for a linked list example by the end. This is not an advanced book.
Appendixes are available from the publishers web site, pity these weren't printed with the book on the second edition. Also the author isn't available for contact on the e-mail address supplied.
If you are disciplined enough to go through all 24 one hour lessons in this book (I did it in 3 weeks) you should come out with some solid foundations and a good understanding of C.
You will have to learn your IDE for Windows on your own as the page that covers that is brief. Only MS and Borland environments are covered. If you use Unix or Linux, this book is not for you.
The lack of a CD is a plus. Typing your own programs and learning the mistakes YOU make in creating programs is the way to learn. Some will say that this is a disadvantage. I see it as an opportunity to gain experience.
The first few chapters discuss basics and indeed will get the student started. But when the going get rough, the explanations get hasty and sparse. Like many courses, they start with good intentions but the end of the term presses and the pace increases just when the material gets more difficult. The last half of the book should have been the last two-thirds. Check out a different C book, there have to be better ones.
I was however, a bit disappointed by the fact that the author never really explained very well WHY you use these valuable functions, pointers, arrays, etc.
Also, I thought that the exercises at the back of each chapter tended to throw you in the deep end towards the end of the book. I found I was constantly refering to the answers in the back of the book to figure everything out, which doesn't build your confidence much! I think they would have been better having more exercises in each chapter to complete, starting off very simply and then getting harder in order for you to really grasp the concepts.
On the plus side though, the book is short and concise and allows you to whiz through the C language. Then you can move on more quickly to fry bigger fish - C++ and windows programming!
